The Axiom Streamliner Road DLX rear rack is designed for road bikes with caliper brakes that don't have braze-ons or threads for mounting standard racks. The rack has an arm that attaches to the rear caliper mounting bolt and legs that mount using your bike's existing quick-release skewer. The feet also set the rack 4cm behind the axle for excellent heel clearance especially on frames with short chainstays. Features a narrow profile that is more aerodynamic when loaded and also keeps loads closer to center for better stability. Hand-welded 10.2mm tubular 6061-T6 aluminum construction for strength and durability. Fits 700c wheels with fenders. Rack weight: 510 grams (1.12 lbs). Color: Black.
Note: Although Axiom rates this rack as having a maximum load capacity of 110lbs, we don't recommend a load of more than 45lbs.

awesome adjustability, but maybe too much
We originally bought this to accommodate the husband's Ortlieb briefcase bag. The bag is incredibly wide, and this rack was the only one that could be set back far enough to avoid heel strike. Unfortunately, the whole setup moved his center of gravity too much and made the bike unstable. I gave it 4 stars because it's specifically not made for touring bikes which have rack bosses and a longer wheelbase, so the center of gravity problem is likely to happen for a lot of people using this with a road bike and setting it as far back as it will go. But if you avoid this pitfall, as we have by getting a narrower bag and moving the rack a bit closer, it is otherwise well-designed. Installation was a snap, the rack feels sturdy, and the design allows for lots of different bag attachment points. Overall I think it's a great rack for the price.
